I found this product browsing new items on one of my favorite web sites, and I think it would be very helpful for our furry babies that suffer from weaknesses on their hinds.

They have L-M & S sizes.

Another curious product, a little bit expensive, but a nice option for senior, cushings and pets with polyuria : an Indoor pad that would greatly serve our ill or senior pets and a big relief for us the parents:

They have a small and a large size: (watch the video)

Hey thats a good idea - the paw pads. I have a dachshund so she is only about 3 inches off the ground but her back legs still slide out from under her sometimes. I am hoping if she gets better her muscles will come back too.

I recently trained her to go poty on a wee wee pad. Wow that made my life easier. For the past 3 to 4 years I have been getting up at least once in the middle of the night to let her outside. Now I block her in the bedroom with her bowl of water and her wee wee pad and I get to sleep all night!!

Thanks for the links.

Hi Marcela,
I like the idea of the paw pads.

Just purchased a set of gripper socks for our Roxee so she would be able to walk better. Tried them on her and they seem to turn around as she is walking, ends up that the grippers are on top of her paw and she's trying to skate on the slippery side. :mad: Threw them out:(

I just might try these paw pads.

Saw the pet paw stickers. they look like they may work. I used the socks before as well and they did turn over and made them more slick. I ordered 2 sets. of the pads, even if they only work for a while it would be worth it. Will let you know how they work.
thanks for the link.

I have great hopes for the paw pads, Truffa don't mind the boots, but as you all said they turn around and they become a hazard instead of a help. They work very well on the snow though.

I just would like to stop worrying every time she is walking over my woodfloors, and tornado Nina passes near her:eek:, I've seen her fall twice and I panicked....

Tammy, your idea is brilliant!!!, it's been a while since I had to permanently woke up twice to take Truffa outside, but if it'll happens again (knock on wood) that would be my first demand to my hubby.

Sharon, me and probably John would be the designated testers on this paw pads.

Well, got the Paw Pads, I think they will work, dont know how long they will stay on and on my big dogs big paws I have to be careful where I place them. I got the largest ones but Nikes pads are still bigger so I have to be sure I put them where she puts pressure on her pads, not in the middle of her pad. I have them on her now, she does seem to grip better, they do stick on pretty good. will see when she goes outside, so am holding my opinion till then.

any update on how they are holding up?

they look like the perfect solution for niko - who refuses to stop laying on the hardwood floors. i trim the fur in between his toes and i've tried moisturizing his pads to give them more grip - but it only helps some.

i've got cut pipe insulation on most corners in my house (i call them 'roo bumpers' as 'roo' is niko's nickname) and i have put the no slip carpet pad on my leather seats for him in the car. this would be just one more thing to make his life fool proof! :D

I've received the paw pads a few days ago and they look like they would work, but I can't still give you an opinion, since we are having some problems walking, we are waking on three legs now, we are getting better though, maybe next week will start using them.

I was thinking just using them on the hind paws. I'll be checking on how Nike is doing and to let you know how our own experience goes.

i got mine in yesterday. they work quite well! niko has MUCH more traction on the hardwood floors. i'm curious to see how long they will hold up - considering how much walking we do outside. i will update when they wear out. :)

I got Nikki's pawpads a couple of weeks ago. I think they stayed on a week.The ad did say they work better on larger dogs. I will say that while they were on she had much better traction.The smaller dogs have very little flat surface for them to stick to, so a week wasn't that bad.Nikki's been walking better lately so I'm saving my second set for a while. I do think they are quite useful!:D
